The warrior poet


In early 2012 poet Cameron Conaway was awarded a small arts grant from the Wellcome Trust to begin work on a full-length book of poems about malaria. For the next seven months, Conaway researched, traveled and was guided by the Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit in Bangkok, Thailand. "Malaria: Poems" is now complete.

Although it is still under review for publication the manuscript has already garnered reviews from two of America's most renowned poets, Dorianne Laux and Jimmy Santiago Baca.
